So my dad sometimes brings up this experience he had when he was little (in the sixties), about him playing with this venomous and rare snake. My dad said it was white and with a perfect, red diamond pattern down its back, he played with it for hours without knowing it was venomous. Later, after releasing it, my dad went to the library and found a picture of the snake, he hasn't seen anything about it since. We seem to think it was either extremely rare or extinct now. Can someone shed some light on this?
